Deluge ends painting day

Water media and a rainstorm don't mix, as I learned on a recent painting excursion.

Here's the painting, which is a mixture of casein and watercolor. The fun of this subject for me was the contrast between the comprehensibility and order of the right half of the scene and the strange abstract patterns on the left.

Even without the issues of the rainy weather, it was a mind-bending challenge to reconcile the view seen through the glass with the second world reflected in the glass, especially because the glass was old and wavy. Had I been working from a photo, these worlds would be brought to the same focal plane, but not so when painting from direct observation.

I hope you'll stay tuned tomorrow for the DVD/download release, and please subscribe to my YouTube channel to get the new releases first.
